Beautiful Japanese Countryside in Furuma

I love the quietness and the beauty of the countryside in Nagano Prefecture. These photos were taken in Furuma, not too far from Mount Kurohime and lake Nojiri. Unfortunately I don’t remember the exact location but it should be easy to get similar vistas by walking around Furuma station.

Uga Shrine on Bentenjima Island, Lake Nojiri

The Uga Shrine is located on an island in the middle of Lake Nojiri. The only way to access it is by a taking a cruise boat from Nojiri city. The cruise does a brief tour of the lake before stopping on the Island. You can spend as much time as you like visiting the shrine since you can hop on subsequent cruises as well for the return trip.

Nojiriko Hotel El Bosco

The Nojiriko Hotel El Bosco has a special concept of ‘a hotel made for reading’ and is definitely a relaxing place. The architecture was designed to blend with the surrounding nature. The lobby and the restaurant feature large windows with a view on the forest. Also, each bedroom offers a view of the Nojiriko lake. The restaurant offers European and Japanese-inspired cuisine with fresh local ingredients. A separate, small and cozy room of the hotel serves as the soba bar where one can enjoy delicious soba noodles, famous in Nagano prefecture, with their favorite drink.

Mount Kurohime (kurohime-yama,黒姫)

Mount Kurohime is located in the northern part of Nagano prefecture. When I visited with my girlfriend’s family, there were really nice gardens in full bloom. We took the cable-car to go half-way to the summit where we enjoyed a fantastic view of Lake Nojiri.
